Biden to speak at Florida JCC, Atlanta synagogue on same day


WASHINGTON (JTA) — Vice President Joe Biden will speak at a South Florida JCC on the same day he speaks at an Atlanta synagogue.

Biden will speak Thursday morning at the David Posnack Jewish Community Center in Davie. That evening, he will speak on “Challenges Facing the U.S. and the World in the 21st Century” at Ahavath Achim Synagogue, the synagogue said in a statement.

The Obama administration is aggressively courting U.S. Jews to back the sanctions relief for nuclear restrictions deal reached in July between Iran and six major powers, as Congress considers whether to accept or reject the deal.

Biden has also been reported to be considering a presidential run.
